On the Feasibility of an ECDLP Algorithm

Sergey Grebnev

Abstract: We study the properties of an algorithm for solving the elliptic curve discrete logarithm problem presented by A.~Yu.~Nesterenko at the CTCrypt 2015 session. We show that for practically important instances of the problem its average complexity is not less than that of Pollard's rho-method.

Category / Keywords: elliptic curves, discrete logarithm problem, multiplicative orders, Pollard's lambda, Pollard's rho
